US Removes Nigeria From Hillary Clinton's Visit To Africa


The Department of State, on Monday excluded Nigeria From the list of countries that the US Secretary of States, Ms. Hillary Clinton will be visiting during her ongoing Visit to the African continent.


Reason for the action which appeared to be a last minute change is unknown as none of the officials of the Department of States was able to provide a specific answer for our correspondent who was curious to know why Nigeria was not included in the programme of Secretary Hillary Clinton as earlier scheduled.


According to a press statement made available to White House Correspondent on Monday night, Ms. Hillary Clinton who will be accompanied by a U.S. business delegation will only Visit Senegal, South Sudan, Uganda, Somalia, Kenya, Malawi and South Africa.


The statement reads in parts: "Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Africa July 31 through August 10, 2012. During this trip, the Secretary will emphasize U.S. policy commitments outlined in the Presidential Policy Directive - to strengthen democratic institutions, spur economic growth, advance peace and security as well as promote opportunity and development for all citizens"


"The Secretary’s first stop will be Senegal, where she will meet President Sall and other national leaders and deliver a speech applauding the resilience of Senegal's democratic institutions and highlighting America's approach to partnership"


"Next, Secretary Clinton travels to South Sudan where she meets with President Kiir to reaffirm U.S. support and to encourage progress in negotiations with Sudan to reach agreement on issues related to security, oil and citizenship"
In Uganda, the statement, said Secretary Clinton will meet with President Museveni to encourage strengthening of democratic institutions and human rights, while also reinforcing Uganda as a key U.S. partner in promoting regional security, particularly in regard to Somalia and in regional efforts to counter the Lord’s Resistance Army, stressing that she will also highlight U.S. support in the fight against HIV/AIDS.


"The Secretary will then travel to Kenya where she plans to meet President Kibaki, Prime Minister Odinga, and other government officials to emphasize her support for transparent, credible, nonviolent national elections in 2013" the statement said.


To underscore U.S. support for completing the political transition in Somalia by August 20th, Secretary Clinton will also meet with President Sheikh Sharif and other signatories to the Roadmap to End the Transition.
The statement pressed further that the US Secretary continues her trip in Malawi, visiting President Banda to discuss economic and political governance and reform.


The last leg of her Visit to Africa, according to the statement is South Africa, and there, Secretary Clinton will pay her respects to ex-President Mandela, and as well participate in the U.S.-South Africa Strategic Dialogue focusing on the partnership between the two countries in addressing issues of mutual concern and their shared challenges on the African and world stage.


However, an official of the state department who prefered anonymity told our Correspondent that the non-inclusion of Nigeria in the list of the countries that Ms. Hillary Clinton could not be unconnected to the security challenges that the country is presently having.


The source added that though Nigeria is the United States' best strategic partner in Africa, the Barrack Obama-led administration would not want to handle the issue of insecurity and security with levity.


It would be recalled that there were series of media reports towards the end of last week that US Secretary, Ms. Hillary Clinton would be visiting Nigeria during her ongoing visits to Africa.


Reports also had it that Secretary Hillary Clinton would be having some highlevel meetings with President Goodluck Jonathan and some Nigerian officials during the Visit which has ended up not being in the programmes of the US top official.


This is not the first time that the insecurity state in Nigeria would be costing the country such visits of foreign officials.


On the 21st of March, 2010, the United Nations Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide who was on a United Nations fact-finding Visit to Nigeria and some West Africa at the instance of the Secretary-General of the World body, cancelled the Nigerian leg of the trip following the political developments that led to the dissolution of that country’s Cabinet during that time.


Although, the UN Genocide Expert publicly said that he was not using the trip to West Africa to “pinpoint any countries,” but feelers said that he decided to cancel his Visit to Nigeria because of the belief that the dissolution of the Nigerian cabinet could cause riots and then lead to insecurity.
